A gender neutral name for a billboard exploring gender stereotypes. On the left shows a woman dressed as a doctor with the text "Girls are not..." followed by "doctors", behind the woman is a kitchen demonstrating the typical gender stereotypes for women. Similarly on the right is a man crying with the text "Boys dont..." "cry", behind him is a construction site again representing the typical stereotypes men experience. 

This piece aims to encourage the viewer to question their assumptions around gender in the presentation of an advert.
